BroadForward announced that the its Next Generation Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) is now in full operation on SaskTel's wireless network.
The BroadForward DSC provides SaskTel with the ability to integrate and operate intelligent Diameter signaling scenarios across networks and vendor-specific implementations. It offers support for signaling scenarios across other protocols such as SS7, SIP, ENUM, RADIUS and HTTP.
SaskTel assessed multiple leading Diameter router vendors and selected the BroadForward DSC to fully replace their F5 SDC Diameter routers, said BroadForward. Based in the province of Saskatchewan in the heartland of Canada's prairie region, SaskTel is a major player in the Information, Communications, & Technology (ICT) sector. With $1.2 billion in annual revenue and 1.4 million customer connections, SaskTel is also the leading full-service communications provider in the province, offering Mobile, Fixed/Wi-Fi, IP-TV, Landline, and Security services.
The BroadForward Next Generation DSC provides SaskTel with an easy to configure, multi-protocol routing and interworking software solution, designed to orchestrate converged signaling services across 2G/3G, 4G/LTE, Fixed/Wi-Fi networks and ultimately 5G.
